SqueeZurts! Save Money and Make Kids Happy
Have you ever given your kids one of those sugary yogurts in a tube? I have many times because they are so convenient for lunches and when we're traveling but I've always wished that there was a healthier alternative since I don't like to give my kids high-sugar foods.
Thank goodness someone came up with a great alternative. They are called SqueeZurts and these are do-it-yourself tubes that you can fill with anything you want!
I got to try out the starter kit from http://www.squeezurts.com/ and it came with 6 tubes and a handy bottle for filling, plus 2 fabric sleeves you can use to keep the little kids hands from getting too cold.
My kids were so excited to pack a delicious berry smoothie into their lunch bag. My 7yo told me that everyone was asking how she got that rainbow gogurt. :)
The only trouble I had was when I tried to fill them with our favorite greek yogurt and berries. The mixture was too thick to get through the nozzle. One remedy is to slice off the end (about 1/4") of the nozzle on the fill bottle for a larger opening. In my case, I just added some milk to thin the mixture and froze them and they were perfect.
I am loving these so much, I think I'm going to have to order 6 more. My mom thought it was a great idea to have when the grandkids come visit.
